Wauwatosa Pets Who Need A Home

Pet News

Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, facilities in the Wauwatosa area have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Wisconsin, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — many of whom are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new friend is at a local shelter. If you aren't sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you're a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
